John Boyega became a household name after he starred as stormtrooper-turned-rebel Finn in the most recent Star Wars trilogy. However, it seems the actor wants his fans to know he has left the role of behind him and plans to move forward with his career beyond a galaxy far, far away.
As reported by Variety, Boyega revealed that he has moved on from the Star Wars franchise in response to one fan's comment on one of his Instagram posts. The photo showed that the actor is back on set for a new project. "Force Finn in action with Green lightsaber dressed in black is all I want from the next SW film," one fan commented on the post, to which Boyega replied, “Lol no thank you. I’ve moved on.”
Another user wrote, “Really just got those Disney bucks and dipped,” to which Boyega responded, “Nope. Not into playing one role for too long. I have more to offer than that. That’s all.” Seriously, making three blockbuster films in an iconic franchise is a huge time commitment for an actor! It makes sense that he wants to move on with his career.
No matter what people think about the most recent Star Wars trilogy, I love Finn and think Boyega gave the character his all. He is a wildly talented performer and I can't wait to see what his next project has in store!
